I’m more than a little bit excited about this wedding. With a modern Bride totally rocking her very stylish and grown up look, it’s a total fashion fest. That, plus a pale but pretty palette and some out of this world photography by the wonderful Cara and Nye at Lillian and Leonard, and you’re all going to love it too.
We are Naomi and Arjen and our wedding was on March 27th 2010 at Crear, near Kilberry in Argyll.
My Dress was by a designer called Jesus del Pozo bought from Liberty in London. It was only the second place I went to try on dresses and I literally could have bought every single one but when I tried this one on I knew it was the one. I wanted something swooshy and not too formal (I never wear long dresses). It was quite Grecian and incredibly comfortable – which was important to me. It was also something that I knew Arjen would love (which he did).
Keeping it Simple
I had earrings from The Earring Boutique online (cheap but beautiful). No other jewellery (my engagement and wedding rings were enough). I had bought a comb to go in my hair but on the day decided on a few Lilly of the valley and roses from my bouquet instead.
I wanted to look like me but better (not a different person, wanted my husband to recognise me)!
My hair was in a side bun and was done by Vicki from Heaven (a local hairdresser in Lochgilphead) she came to the venue and was amazing. She did exactly what I wanted.
I did my own make up and discovered the wonder of mineral makeup (bare minerals) I bought everything else from SpaceNK, spent a great afternoon having a makeover to try everything out!
Very high, dusky rose in colour with metallic spiky heels from Salvatore Ferragamo. They were hand made and had petals on the back of the heels. I wanted shoes I could wear again so cream was out. I wear them all the time now with jeans.
Luschious Lily of the Valley
The bouquets and button holes were all different. My bouquet was lilly of the valley which looked and smelled beautiful.
Chic and Stylish in Navy
We didn’t have a colour scheme but I wanted the bridesmaids to have something they could wear again. We got navy blue knee length dresses from LK Bennett and I know they have all worn them since. They wore their own shoes (from flats to 5 inch heels).
A Stylish Groom
He wore a Hugo Boss suit and a Liberty print shirt – he doesn’t like ties so he didn’t wear one. He didn’t look at me as I walked down the aisle because someone told him it is not the done thing but he teared up when I got to him and so did I – so I think that was a good reaction! Saying our vows it felt like we were the only people in the room and was quite a surreal experience but an amazing one.
The Best Men wore their own suits and looked fantastic in them.
Seriously? How Bea.Utiful is this Bride? Super stylish and with a Groom to match!
I could literally cry tomorrows post is so good, so beautiful, so clean. The decor, the details, the images. Pure Brilliant white and lots of love, you will not be disappointed.
